Meota and District News: Seniors wrap up golf season with bingo

Weather delays keep Iffley Road detour in place.
Sept. 20, Meota Girls Club, leaders and Fonzie the French Bulldog took advantage of the enjoyable fall weather to clean their adopted street.

MEOTA — The storm in eastern Maritimes has held our attention this weekend; such a terrible material loss to so many folks. Having travelled the Cabot Trail and been to Glace Bay makes it all seem more real than it would otherwise. 

The senior wind-up at the golf course ended on a high note. A friendly game of golf bingo saw three teams tied with three lines of bingo each. The winning team with a score of 38 included Jack Day, Bernie Gregoire, Marcelle Duhaime, Anette Duhaime and Carol Dyck. The consolation winners with a score of 41 were Dennis Tebay, Larry Dyck, Lynn Hiles and Elizabeth Buchinski. A delicious luncheon of chicken kabobs, rice pilaf and numerous salads was followed by a variety of desserts and a special cake a-la-mode honouring the presence of Cora and Svend Christiansen. Games were played following the noon meal and all went home well fed and happy.

Due to weather and contractor delays, the Iffley road closure is extended indefinitely. The detour is well marked through the Glenrose area and range road 3163.

The bridge players met again Sept. 20 and top scores went to Gerry Craig and Barbara Mitchell. Second were Anna Waldbilling and Margaret Dyck. On Sept. 22, Vern Iveron and David Sharpe took top spot followed by Catriona Winterholt and Margaret Dyck.

The next flu shot clinic is being held in the Do Drop In Oct. 17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A drive around the city last week left one in sheer delight as the flowers \ the city has planted in planters here, there and everywhere are the best I can ever remember. Thanks to the caretakers and the weather, these are appreciated so much. It also proves that one doesn’t have to live at the coast to have beautiful flowers.

Canasta played Sept. 23 in the Do Drop In, found top score go to Dave Sayers and Vern Iverson. Second were Karn Kelly and Beth Wynne and third were Linda Ard and Vivianne Lesko. It was another nice social gathering with some garden produce offered by those with too many tomatoes, cucumbers and other items to those of us without gardens. This is always appreciated by recipients. 

The highway out of the city is coming along nicely and soon the white and yellow lines will be painted on the new parts. We are hoping the lines will be repainted on the stretch of road south of Meota, as it’s been waiting a long time and it is dangerous driving at night, without them.
